Author(s):

Abstract:
Rapid increasing population and industrialization, the demand of energy is also increased. The different agricultural waste which are rich cellulose such as maize, sugarcane etc has been considered as major source of raw material for production of bio-ethanol. The production of bio-ethanol from agro-residues involves four processes of pre-treatment, enzymatic hydrolysis, fermentation and distillation. In present study sugarcane, corn and sorghum were selected as raw material for bioethnol production. The combination of acid and alkaline pretreatment method used to increase the concentrations of fermentable sugars after enzymatic hydrolysis which is followed by the simultaneous enzymatic saccharification and fermentation (SSF) process. The fermentation is carried out under influence of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The result indicate after pretreatment selected biomass is rich cellulose and hemi cellulose, consider as promising material for ethanol production. Among them sugarcane showed highest production comparative to other.
